Wow! Our group (three adult children and two parents) had a wonderful tour with Jim. We had no idea what to expect from Northern Ireland, and Jim's knowledge of and love for his country made the day special. He was flexible with our group and gave us a tour of Belfast before we headed north to see the spectacular countryside. We've done cruise ship run excursions, but are so glad we opted for a private tour. We got so much more out of our short time, and we cannot recommend Jim highly enough.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Christine, I’m so glad you enjoyed your day and the pleasure was all mine.

James met us 6 seniors at the cruise terminal for our tour of Belfast on September 9th. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with him. Firstly to the Titanic Hotel where he took us inside to see the drawing office of Harland and Wolff. The place where all the planning took place of the building of the Titanic. James is a powerhouse of facts and information. We went into the beautiful city frequent stops he gave information and covered everything its history and troubles. Thank you James you know your city.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Mike, again the pleasure was all mine sir and remember you as guests are a major factor in making a tour enjoyable. Regards James

Had a most enjoyable morning with James. He knew when we had enough and moved us onto the next site to see with much ease. He was helpful, witty and most of all informative.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, and the pleasure was all mine Sharon.

We spent the day with James O on July 17, 2019. Belfast was a stop during our British Isles Cruise. Our primary tour was a drive along the Antrim Coast - which was amazing. But the highlight of our day was an unscheduled drive through Belfast itself, giving all the history and current day information. We so appreciated this and the time spent with James. James is passionate, personable and very entertaining. Thank you !!! Donna Reyes 5 STARS Donna Reyes USA

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Donna.

Jim is very knowledgeable and willing to structure the tour to meet your interests. We chose an 8:00 a.m. start time which was early for some entry times, but Jim managed to work around that. (Would suggest starting later). I definitely recommend choosing Jim as a tour guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Janet, the pleasure was all mine

James was flexible, knowledgeable, considerate, good-natured, well-spoken ... he was the perfect guide! He helped us by presenting options with pros and cons, so we could make decisions based on what was best for us on that particular day. We managed to see portions of Belfast before heading out for the Antrim Coast, a couple of GOT sites, and the Giant's Causeway. A full day without feeling rushed or as though we had missed too much. He is, in short, an extremely good tour guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Betty, the pleasure was all mine.Jim

James is amazing!He took the time upon first meeting us to find out about us, discuss what we were interested in and made us feel very comfortable with him.James did an excellent job of showing us the highlights of the city.His explanation of the Irish conflict was through and he helped us understand those painful times in a personal way. James went above and beyond when he included an unexpected stop by the Titanic Exhibit.We ended our time together feeling as if we had just visited with a family member

We had a fantastic day with Jim! He took us to all the places on our long list of must see sights! Jim was accommodating, personable, and flexible. Prior to our tour he quickly answered my emails and helped personalize our tour. His van was perfect for touring and he drove us safely to our destinations. Jim's friendly manor and humor made this tour a delightful experience that we won't soon forget! All our family enjoyed our day with Jim and that includes the 3 generations that were on our tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Laurie, the pleasure was all mine also the very fact that i was presented with the opportunity to meet three generations of your family, whom may i add were friendly, funny (especially Mother) polite and pleasant speaks volumes for yourself and family. Enjoy Scotland and the rest and i do sincerly hope to meet you again. Regards Jim
